On November 1, 2016 the Executive Board approved three changes to the WCE PTA Bylaws. Changes must be  approved by General Membership in order to formally amend the bylaws.

  1. Increase the Local portion of PTA dues from $4 to $5.50. (State dues are currently $2.25 and National are currently $2.25. Total membership dues will equal $10.) (Article V, Section 2)
  2. Add a 5th VP position, VP of Communications, to the Executive Board. This position will oversee communications and publicity functions. (Article VI)
